Today in Maths we have been learning about and using money. We have been adding up different coins to see how much we have in total. This is definitely going to help us when we are working at the Tourist Information shop!
Our shop has been officially opened by Mrs Cockram!
The Grand Opening happened on Monday 15th January at 11:45.
Mrs Cockram came to officially open our shop which involved her cutting the ribbon and answering lots of our questions. We are going to use her answers as quotes in our Newspaper Reports about the event!
Sophie and Olivia have wrote steps to help people answer multiplication questions using the grid method. This is the method that the year 4s use when they have a multiplication question.

Today we started work on our first customer's holidays!
We have had requests from Mrs Cockram and Mr Westaway to help them with their holidays. Mrs Cockram is going to Sicily and Mr Westaway wants to go somewhere hot with lots of things to do.
So we split into groups and got to work finding out as much information as we could.
We have a brand new Tourist Info shop in our classroom! It is the perfect place to go and get maps and information.
In Class 2 we have been planning the Grand Opening of the shop! So far we have wrote letters to a 'very special person' to come and open the shop. We received a reply from the guest and they are coming to open our shop on Monday 15th January. We have also made posters to advertise our shop, and the grand opening, and to try and persuade people to come to the Tourist Info shop.
This week in Science we started looking at Rocks.
We found out about some different types of rocks and found out you can have man-made or natural rocks. Did you know that a man-made rock is a rock that has been moved, modified or made by a human?
We then look at different rocks and sorted them into a man-made group and a natural group.
This week was the first week of our new topic, ‘Mapventures’. Even though it was only three days we have done loads!
In literacy we used our inference and prediction skills to answer questions using only the front cover of our new class book, ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’. After Mr Lee tweeted some of our work, Sarah McIntyre (one of the authors of the book) read our work and replied to us!
We then planned and wrote letters to Mrs Cockram asking her if she would be able to open our new Tourist Information shop in our classroom.
This week, in Geography, we learnt about the Equator and how it separates the world into two hemispheres. These are the North and South Hemispheres. We also found out information about countries in both hemispheres and that are on the equator.
In Maths, we have been using the inverse operation to check our addition and subtraction questions.
